Website Details

The code on this website was written in XHTML (Extensible Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).

I believe it is important to have a website conform to the highest standards of the World Wide Web. Those standards are set but a group called The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) which defines itself as “an international community that develops standards to ensure the long-term growth of the Web” and has the stated goal to “lead the Web to its full potential.” W3C Validation Link. I believe that anything done in the name of Jesus Christ and calling itself Christian needs to be done with a spirit of excellence. Because of this I have ensured that this site has valid and verifiable XHTML and CSS code and I placed a link in the “footer” at the bottom of each page to both state this and make it easy to check.

After a website has been developed there comes the selection of a Domain Name, which is purchased from a Domain Name Registrar. That domain name becomes a part of the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of a site. The domain name for this site is servantoftheword.ca. Go Daddy. The complete URL of this page is http://servantoftheword.ca/websitedetails.html. Having purchased the domain name, the website then has to be housed on a server (a web-accessible computer) from which your computer can present them to the screen you are now reading. I purchased both the domain name and the hosting from www.GoDaddy.com. From their homepage you can do a search and see if the domain name you want is available and purchase both the domain name and hosting. Both domain names and hosting have to be renewed each you. I find GoDaddy to be both reasonable in price and very helpful each time I have called asking for help.

Finally, I chose this template and altered it for my use. Its simple yet attractive style is appropriate to the message I am trying to convey.
